Susan van Wambeck and Adriane Dedic explore what happens when they merge, contrast, pair, or collage their individual pieces of art into a single combined, artistic expression.

See how each artist will combine the images differently, or pair separate works of art to make a statement about duality such as displaying Susan’s pastel illustration of feet next to Adriane’s monoprint of shoes.

The exhibit will feature a blended portrait where elements of Adriane’s whimsical, collage of a young girl are combined with Susan’s realistic pastel portrait of a young woman in a Western hat. The result is intriguing as elements from both original pieces seem to weave together mysteriously.

The exhibit opens Saturday August 16 at the Fremont Art Association Gallery, 37659 Niles Blvd., in Fremont. Meet the artists on Sunday August 17 at the reception 1:30 to 4:30 pm.

The two artists have many things in common since both are graphic designers, use Photoshop for artistic manipulations, and like combining words with images. Their art mediums differ, however. Adriane uses printmaking techniques to create original monoprints and drypoint engravings. Susan uses pastel, acrylic, and watercolor. Both artists agree that the results of their collaborative experiments have been surprising and inspiring.
